    Constructed from lab certified Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor, (1/4” thickness) these plates provide the operator with Level III protection IAW NIJ0101.06 standards.

    We’ve taken our Level III Body Armor to a NEW level! Spartan Armor Systems™ is pleased to introduce our AR550 Body Armor!  With a 10% increase in ballistic core hardness, our level III+ AR550 armor defeats higher velocity threats such as XM193, M855, and M80! We’re special rifle threat validated!

    Our AR550 armor hits the “sweet spot” in the Brinnell Hardness (BHN) range. With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found our  ballistically rated variant of AR550 that we use is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming.

    Our AR550 Level III+ armor has our GEN2 lower cut radius. With a 10% increase in core hardness, this ballistic grade steel is much harder than AR500, but not too hard to cause severe stress while forming.

    With higher velocity rifle threats commonly present throughout the United States, we’ve developed this AR550 armor to specifically defeat some common threats such as 5.56 x 45 XM193, 5.56 x 45 M855 /SS109 and 7.62 x 51 (.308 Winchester) at a rated velocity of 3,100 fps or less. Additionally, we’ve successfully defeated these threat profiles from Close Quarters Battle (CQB) distances…repeatedly!

    Chest Plate Weight (per plate):   10x12 AR550 Shooters Cut: Base Coat 8lbs 6oz.

    Side Plate Weight (per plate):    6×6 approximately 2lbs 12.8oz (base coat)

    Due to popular demand, we have added a “base coat” only option for our Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor products. The base coat option has an extremely thin layer of our fragmentation mitigation coating to aesthetically enhance the plates and to provide corrosion resistance. This coating has minimal, if any, fragmentation mitigation capabilities.

    Fits these Sizes:

    M L XL
    Chest Size (in.) 38" - 40" 42" - 44" 46" - 48"

            Excellent quality carrier and plates

            I have had to use this yet, but the quality seems to be excellent and everything fits nicely.

            Branden G.
            Always top rated

            Item is exactly what was as described and the quality gets just as high of a mark in my book. For the prices you simply can't beat it. Highly recommended

            Spartan plate carrier

            I am very pleased with the Spartan system. The vest and plates seem sturdy and well made. While it is heavy the system is reasonably comfortable. It would be nice if they had included instructions or provided a video explaining how to set up the vest. It wasn't to hard to figure out.

            L3 spartan armor

            I love this vest. It fits varying sizes. With front and back plate it’s moderately comfortable for the level of protection it provides. Great product. Two thumbs up!

            my husband had been asking for a bullet proof vest for a while now. So I decided to get it for him for Christmas. Mind you I don’t know anything about this type of stuff but when I came to this website they had it set up to where you can just buy it all together (which helped me so much). The pricing is super fair and reasonable. I ordered it and realized I never got a confirmation for the order (totally my fault because I never put in my email) so I contacted them and they helped me out right away! The vest came and is exactly what we expected! Thank you guys, he is so happy with it!
